Quick reminder to be kind when shopping and running around this week. Especially on the shopping day people call 'black friday'. (btw, am I the only one who dislikes that name?).
We all have an opportunity to spread joy and love - not only to our loved ones over Thanksgiving dinner, but also to all the great workers serving us in stores, restaurants, and deliveries. Let's remember to prioritize empathy and kindness to our fellow workers we encounter.
Worker empowerment starts with supporting one another. We know that many places are understaffed and overworked. So when things go wrong out there, lets pause to remember its not that frontline hero's fault. And they prob had to deal with customers that do NOT remember that - so what a chance to help make their day better.
Check out this page for some quick info of a survey we did - over 60% are worried about safety on black Friday. Lets step up and support one another. And lets spread some good Holiday joy!
I don't even shop on black Friday,many stores now have early sales! My worst memory as a boy was having my items that I was going to purchase ripped out of my hands.It was chaos and I don't want any part of it,Ford
Black Friday comes from stores being in the red, meaning negative profit, all year and going into black, meaning positive profit, during the holiday season. Stop making everything about race.
the name only annoys me if I don't remember its history. It's the time when businesses 'get in the black' i.e., out of debt before end of year. It's also ironic that these impatient people forget that it's their fault that it's so busy. If people didn't go out for Black Friday (I certainly don't!) the stores wouldn't be open. Ditto for Black Thursday/Thanksgiving Day! Don't be hypocritical and sympathize with workers who are only there because of you and people like you! Sympathize by all means, but please remember that, if people weren't willing to shop, they wouldn't be there.
Agreed spreading the love ❤️ is always a good thing
